Fishermen nabbed in Battambang

Four men were arrested on Monday after they were caught fishing in a protected area by military police in Battambang province.

The men will be sent to the provincial court today to be questioned and charged, police say.

Chim Chenda, commander of the military police unit that made the arrests, told the Post that the suspects were part of a larger group numbering more than 10.

The rest escaped when Chenda and his officers swooped in to make the arrests.

“The offenders had newer and faster boats that were more advanced than ours,” he said.
